Your mother called you Thursday? Or Deraan? Gosh, feels silly suggesting it.
True. But then again, imagine the torture that poor child feels as soon as they actualise their names meaning. And as an adult, I know the feeling of always hesitating to say my name, because no new acquaintance has ever pronounced it right, so to introduce yourself as sewage every time, the trauma ... wow.
as a kid i was always out playing cricket with friends, so every time i came home she would say, agha da deranee raghai. I think she thought it might bring me in ''ghairath'' so i'd spend less time outside the house.
actually most of them just stick with it and never bother to change their names. I won? you would imagine most of them would be happy to finally do away with it.
My father actually had to force his step ''uncles'' to change their names.
